- How do people live in towns and cities today? Because in the final analysis, is it so difficult to ‘be OK in a city’ today? And how can urban planners regain their capacity to promote conditions for general ‘well-being’ in urban space? This review tries to outline a new approach to ‘urban well-being’ intended as the chance and the capacity for everyone to ‘be OK’ in their own living space. What results is a change in the focus of attention onto behaviours and practices which inhabitants experience in their everyday lives and onto forms of responsibility and of making citizens active in the care and treatment of those common assets which create ‘urban well-being’. It is a shift of viewpoint which in order to become actual practice requires getting much closer to people by using polyphonic and inclusive approaches to investigation and decision-making which give preference to the dimensions of communication, expression and art, able to go far enough to include subjective sensory perceptions of space in planning and design.)" />
